Yes, String.Format is a lot like printf (or probably really sprintf). The time I probably use it most is when I want to align things in columns.

Modules are pretty easy. They're simply code like global variables and routines that sits out there for any part of the program to use. The only really different thing is that code modules don't have any associated class. In contrast, C# doesn't have code modules so every piece of code must be in a class. To get a similar effect, you create a class (often called Globals or something similar) and give it static (shared) members so all of the rest of the code can use it without instantiating the class.
